Fundamentals of Maintenance Management

Maintenance is a challenging activity in any industry and it is not getting any easier. Global competition and the wider use of Just in Time Manufacturing make it paramount for equipment to perform at world class levels. Increasing regulation also means that securing one’s license to operate requires more effort.

Paul Wheelhouse, a chartered engineer with 18 years industry experience and DAK Academy course leader explains: “As with any skill development journey, a firm grasp of the Fundamentals (of Maintenance Management) is essential to achieving industry leading levels of equipment performance.”

Unfortunately many of those in key maintenance roles have had little formal training in these building blocks of maintenance excellence. These include – 1. How maintenance fits into the company big picture so that it becomes a driver for improved asset performance. 2. How to manage maintenance information systems to use resources efficiently and capture lessons learned. 3. How to develop robust maintenance strategies to support future business goals. 4. How to control costs, spares and maintenance logistics. 5. How to establish proactive team based partnership with other company departments.

Paradoxically, the most noticeable difference between average and best in class performers is their grasp of fundamental principles and techniques. These foundations provide the insight and confidence to identify and address priorities; reduce plant down time and develop effective maintenance policies. In turn this helps to guide key business decisions, budgets and most importantly unlock the true potential of the maintenance team.

The forthcoming Fundamentals of Maintenance Management 3 day workshop 16 –18th September, 2014 in Hampshire, covers these 5 fundamentals in detail using a mix of theory, case studies and practical exercises.
